Hello, I've got a riddle for you all:

Thomas died: He couldn't find a rock...
Only ask yes/no questions, please!

Btw, I'm Dutch, so if there are any spelling/grammar mistakes, then you know why.

[b] bold [/b] but put <> instead of []--makes it bold like this also, don't forget to put your name in your title; it helps us figure out the "owner" of each puzzle. Thanks!

Oops, blooper! Nothing that changes the riddle though. The name of the rodent is Thomas, and I said: "...male? No, but irr"

Thomas isn't a 'female' name, is it?

*********Spoiler*********
It's usefull to know that a rodent's gnawing teeth keep growing it's entire live. That's why they have to keep gnawing on things. Thomas couldn't find a rock to gnaw on, and so she died because she couldn't eat with long teeth.


Crazypalpig, you were really close, but not close enough. Sorry!

I was thinking the same thing--there are some puzzles that have been on the forum for months--and they always get solved by the end. With a few more questions asked and answered, we could have figured it out. Please try not to spoil so quickly. We rather enjoy figuring out puzzles, and it is a letdown to have the answer given to us.
